Guernsey’s insurance sector pledges to be carbon neutral by 2050

The Guernsey International Insurance Association has signed up to the SME Climate Hub’s Climate Commitment. Signatories commit to taking action to halve their greenhouse gas emissions before 2030, achieve net-zero emissions before 2050 and disclose their progress on a yearly basis.

The commitment signed by companies states: “In doing so, we are proud to be recognised by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign, and join governments, businesses, cities, regions, and universities around the world that share the same mission.”

GIIA chairman Mark Elliott said: “GIIA wanted to make this pledge to make a statement for their membership and encourage others to sign up.”
